Don’t Let Winter Slow You Down – Install Dormant Sod

We know landscapers are extremely busy in the spring and summer due to the warmer weather and an influx of landscaping projects. However, what happens during the colder winter months? Most landscaping companies have to scale back operations during this time, using funds from the busier months to help carry them through until business picks up again come spring. We are here to tell you winters don’t have to be so slow for your landscaping company. 

Install Dormant Sod

There are still plenty of landscaping projects that can be done during the winter months – including installing dormant sod. Even though there is always a risk when it comes to installing something that might not grow right away, NG Turf offers a one-year warranty and Spring Green Up Guarantee to help mitigate that risk.  

Spring Green Up Guarantee

Warm season grasses, such as Bermuda and Zoysia, delivered while dormant in the fall or winter are guaranteed to “green up” the following spring, assuming proper installation and winter care. 
Should the sod not green up by June 30, or should too little sod survive the winter to generate acceptable turf quality, NG Turf will supply the sod requested for necessary repairs.

One Year Warranty

We stand behind the quality of our product. When you purchase NG Turf sod, it comes with a one-year warranty. For 12 months after the date of purchase, NG Turf will provide replacement grass and a personal visit from one of our turfgrass professionals–at no cost. You won’t find a warranty or guarantee like this anywhere else!

* Please note, NG Turf does not provide any labor or labor costs to remove unsuitable sod or to reinstall new sod.

The ability to install dormant sod provides landscape professionals with greater flexibility in scheduling and the ability to complete projects quickly during the off season.

Customer Incentives

There are several benefits to completing lawn renovation projects and installing dormant sod in the winter months for homeowners as well. By offering your customers a discounted labor cost as compared with warmer months, you allow their project budget to go further. It’s a win-win – you make money, and they save money!

Completing renovations during the winter months also allows homeowners to enjoy their new outdoor project and a lush, healthy lawn earlier on in the growing season. As soon as the weather begins to warm up, they’ll be able to reap the rewards of their investment sooner rather than later.  

Instant Gratification

If you’re planning to install dormant sod, your customers don’t have to wait for spring to enjoy a green lawn. NG Turf’s painted sod provides a striking green lawn from day one. Whether for a new home or for a landscaping project, the vibrant, natural color of our painted sod adds instant curb appeal with lush green grass.
